I swapped my Lakland 55-02 for a MIA Fender Jazz V and the bass sounds and plays fine. The problem is that I now realize just how much i am used to active basses. I really miss the tonal output and options. I also miss the lack of hum when soloing pickups (I know that's a single coil issue, not an active passive issue, but i thought i would mention that too.) I played an Ibanez SRX705, and I really enjoyed the power of an active bass. I played a Music Man Stingray SR5 HH and it made my Jazz sound like an acoustic guitar. That said, my Jazz sound fine, but I do miss that active punch.
